postulate1-3--given AB and a # r between 0 and 180, there is exactly one ray w/ endpoint
A,extending on each side ofAB, such that the

measure of the angle formed is r
postulate1-4--if r is in the interior of pqs,then Mpqr Mrqs=Mpqs.if Mpqr Mrqs then R is in thr interior of angle pqs
postulate 2-2--through any 3 points not on the same line there is exactly one plane
law of detachment--if P--*Q is a true conditional and P is true,then Q is true
law of syllogism--if P--*Q and Q--*R are true conditionals,then P--*R is also true
theorem2-1--congruence of segments is reflexive,symmetric and transitive
theorem2-2--if 2 angles form a linear pair, then they r supplementary angles
theorem2-3--congruence of angles is reflexive,symmetric,and transitive
theorem2-4--angles supplementary to the same angle or to the congruent angles r congruent
theorem2-5--angles complementary to the same angle or to congruent angles r congruent
theorem2-6--all right angles r congruent
theorem2-7--vertical angles r congruent
theorem2-8--perpindicular lines intersect to form 4 right angles
skew lines-2 lines r skew if they donít intersect and r not in the samn plane
postulate3-1-- if 2 // lines r cut by a transversal,then each pair of corresponding angles is congruent
theorem3-1--if 2 // lines r cut by a transversal,then each pair of alternate interior angles in congruent
theorem3-2--if 2 // lines r cut by a transversal,then each pair of consec. int. angles is supp.
theorem3-3--if 2 // lines r cut by a transversal,then each pair of alternate ext. angles is congruent
theorem3-4--in a plane,if a line is perp. to 1 of 2 // lines,then it is perp. to the other
postulate3-4--2 nonvertical lines have the same slope if and only if they r //.
postulate3-5--2 nonvertical lines r perp. if and only if the product of their slopes is -1
theorem4-3--the measure of an exterior angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of the
measures of the 2 remote interior angles

CPCTC- 2 triangles r congruent if and only if their corresponding parts r congruent
theorem4-4--congruence of triangles is reflexive,transitive and symmetric
theorem4-6--if 2 sides of a triangle r congruent,then the angles opp. the sides r congruent
theorem4-7--if 2 angles of a triangle r congruent,then the sides opp. those angles r congruent
theorem4-3--a triangle is equilateral if and only if it is equiangular
theorem5-1 a point on the perp. bisector of a seg. is equidistant from the endpoints of the seg.
theorem5-2--a point equidistant from the endpoints of a seg. lies in the perp. bisector of the seg.
theorem5-3--a point on the bisector of an angle is equidistant from the sides of the angle
theorem5-4--a point in the interior of or on an angle and equidistant from the sides of an
angle lies on the bisector of the angle

triangle, then the triangles r congruent

  • Interview of euclid
    interview of euclid Ammar: Hi Mr. Euclid. Euclid: Hello Ammar: How are you Sir? Euclid: I am fine thank you. Euclid: How may I help you. Ammar: I want an interview of you Sir for my history teacher. May I get it? Euclid: Yes, sure, why not. So what do you want to ask me? Ammar: If you wonít mind, can I ask some personal questions in the beginning of the interview? Euclid: OK! I wonít mind unless they are too personal. Ammar: What date were you born, and where were you born? Euclid: I am not sure
  • Heron of Alexandria
    Heron of Alexandria Another worker in applied mathematics belonging to the period under consideration was Heron of Alexandria. His much disputed date, with possibilities ranging from 150 BC to 250 AD, has recently been plausibly placed in the second half of the first century AD. His works on mathematical and physical subjects are so numerous and varied that it is customary to describe him as an encyclopedic writer in these fields. There are reasons to suppose he was an Egyptian with Greek traini
